Initially, it was not easy to send and receive money between Airtel and Mpesa due to lack of mobile connectivity between the mobile money platforms. Now, with the Mobile Money interoperability service, you can easily transfer funds from Airtel Money to the MPesa account of the recipient.
The money send from Airtel to M-Pesa will be deposited directly from the sender’s account to the recipient’s account in no time.
To easily send money from your Airtel line to M-Pesa, you must be registered on Airtel Money. On the other hand, the person receiving the money must be a Safaricom customer and registered on M-Pesa service.
